This case involves a 12-year-old boy who sustained an injury during a public school field trip. The child’s class visited a state park, where the students were allowed to ride bicycles on a wooded trail. Protective wear was offered to some of the students, however, many began riding down the trail without helmets. Less than a ½ mile into the trail, the boy lost control of his bicycle and crashed head first into a large tree. He sustained critical injuries, including a skull fracture and brain injury. An educational leadership expert was sought to opine on the issue.
